This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning ice maker, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Stopped cooling and freezing and red blinking lite in the freezer. we have electricity and it sounds as if the motor is running or the fan maybe.


Not sure how old the unit is but you may want to disconnect from power source for 20 or 30 minutes and allow to cool down to run temp.

Remove the bottom panel and look to see if the condenser fan on bottom is turning freely.

If area is full of dust, clean or blow out area

Reconnect power and check for cooling

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

From the outside, the unit seems to be running fine. Inside, the freezer is not freezing and the refridge is not cooling, both are at room temp. I cleaned the coils front and back at the bottom of the unit...


Check the back of the freezer and see if it is iced up in there sometimes you get an ice buildup and have to defrost the whole thing to get it to start working

The freezer seems fine but the other side is not very cool.


I had the same problem w/mine, Found out it was the timer. There is a timer on most fridge's that turn on a defrost lamp inside your fridge. That is why all fridgs are frostless now. They still freeze up, but a lamp will defrost them automaticly. When the coils freeze up, they wont cool the fridge side & but will still cool the freezer side. generally the timer is where the controls are, behind the cover.

Freezer not freezing and fridge not cooling


Check the back wall of the freezer for ice buildup.
If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.
If compressor is not hot.
Replace the compressor start relay.
